Chocolate & Orange Cookies


A quick post to share our cookies that we made yesterday.. Chocolate and Orange Biscuits – they are yum yum yum and QUICK to make! Mmmmh.

Chocolate Biscuits Easy


  • 250g Plain Flour
  • 125g Sugar
  • 125g Butter (helps if it is soft)
  • Tsp of Baking Powder
  • 1 Egg
  • 2 Tblsp of Cocoa Powder
If you do not want to use an egg, you can also use our ALL TIME FAVOURITE Easy Shortbread Recipe – so easy, so versatile. Just add some drops of milk if the coco powder makes it too crumbly! I have used this recipe for Alphabet Cookies, Rainbow Cookies, Valentine’s Cookies, Traffic Light Cookies, Christmas Tree Cookies…. you name it….


  • Icing sugar
  • Freshly squeezed orange juice or flavouring/ little water
  • Sprinkles

Preheat the oven to 180C – bake for 20-30 minutes – until firm.

1) Mix all your cookie ingredients together and knead to a smooth dough

2) Roll out and cut your shapes (Pip Squeak did the cutting, but also a lot of dough eating)

3) Bake

4) Once cooled, mix the icing sugar with the juice, to make  a smooth mixture – ours was a little runny, but that was fine!

5) Top with (lots) of sprinkles

Let set and enjoy!
